Have you heard yet? I am celebrating 10 years of blogging!
Each Tuesday this month you will want to be sure to visit my blog. I will share with you some special party guests (see below) and I have asked them to “CASE” a project from my blog. What does that mean? They get to copy or use some thing I have posted on here for inspiration. They have 10 years of ideas to pick from! They each have browsed my archives and found a card or project on my blog that has inspired them to create and they will be sharing with you that creation! Fun, right? Also be sure to read below how YOU can help me celebrate and see all the FABULOUS sponsors I have prizes from to share with YOU!
- Informational post about my Blogiversary Celebration
- Week 1’s feature and party guests
- Week 2’s fun and inspiration
- Week 4’s celebration
First let me share with you what I chose to CASE this week. Instead of choosing a card, I was inspired by the photos and posts I had about Mister Harley out on his leash 🙂
(TGIHarley used to be a blog feature I did every friday sharing mister harley adventures and cute photos 🙂 myabe I should bring that feature back?)
When I used to live on the cape I would take him outside around the year and he LOVED it! Although he has traded in his harness for bow ties, when I saw this Mama Elephant set with the little Mister Harley I knew just what I had to create with it 🙂
So I was playing with A new set from Mama Elephant, Sunday Stroll and I just thought the little girl and kitty looked just like us 😉
(supplies are all listed at the very bottom of this post)
I watercolored this with Distress Inks on Distress Watercolor Cardstock and then mounted it onto a Lawn Fawn Notecard. Super simple, but I love how it came out!
Visit my Party Guests
I asked some of my crafty friends to help me celebrate this month and to inspire YOU. They all chose a project from my blog to CASE and are sharing it on their blogs. I have new party guests EACH Tuesday this month- wicked fun right? So plan to be here next Tuesday! Let’s PARTY!

Such a cute card… Big big congratulations on 10 years……..and many more:)
I loved your flowers from Ton. also your use zig true brush markers.
Oops forgot to say Happy 10th Blog Versary too! Karen x
Another wonderful card Jenn – love the look you achieved. The other thing that made me laugh a lot is that we used to have a cat that liked to go out on a leash – and the lovely card and photo’s made me remember and bought a smile to my face hun so thank you for that and the link Karen x
I love the flower stamp sets. Just started my flower colouring and these certainly would help. Thank you for the opportunity of winning a set.
Such wonderful inspiration!
Love Mr. Harley! My cat Rusty also goes out for walks on a harness and leash! I have trained all of my cats over the years as I feel it keeps them safe while still giving them the chance to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Love MisterHarley! The stamp is a good depiction of him! Love your card!
Haha – what an adorable thing to be inspired by, firstly. Secondly, adding that leash to the cat on your card is such a clever idea! This is what I love about your designs – they always have such a whimsical flair! 🙂
Such a very sweet card..HAPPY 10th Blog Anniversary!
Super cute Jenn! Love the pics too. TFS
